What would it cost the Jets to move from where they’re currently picking in the NFL Draft, to a top-three pick?
Hindsight is 20/20. Nearly eight months after Mike Maccagnan purged the Jets’ roster of its aging, but well-known veterans, everything is crystal-clear.
He made the right call.
While the Jets are far from a Super Bowl contender, they’re clearly headed in the right direction. Wideout Robby Anderson looks like a budding star. Linebackers Darron Lee and Jordan Jenkins have made noticeable strides. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is a difference-maker, defensive end Leonard Williams a stud, and safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye future Pro Bowlers.
There’s just one thing the Jets don’t have: A franchise quarterback.
Will they get one in April?
As of today, the Jets hold the 10th pick in the 2018 draft. If they want one of the top quarterbacks, they’ll likely have to move up. The Browns (No. 1) and Giants (No. 2) aren’t likely to trade their picks. But the 49ers (No. 3) could.
NFL general managers regularly refer to a pick chart when determining the fairness of draft trades. The charts assign a point value to each pick, with higher picks being worth more points.
If Team X wants Team Y’s pick, they’ll combine a grouping of their own picks to reach a point value that gets close to the value of the desired pick. Each team’s chart varies slightly, which is why charts are exchanged when negotiating a trade.
